Published 15.5.2023


German coal company LEAG has announced an initial €200 million agreement with energy storage manufacturer ESS, to deploy 50 MW / 500 WWh of energy storage at what will be Europe’s largest clean energy hub. The site will also feature 7 GW of solar and wind output facilities by 2030.

The system is expected to become a standardised building block in LEAG’s plan to deploy 2-3GWh of energy storage as part of the transformation of its legacy power plants. The process will also involve the deployment of 7-14GW of renewable energy generation and 2GW of green hydrogen production, although the announcement did not say how much was planned for the Boxberg site specifically.
